So New York was awesome. Highlights include a baseball game in the new Yankee stadium, a visit to the MOMA, the Met, and the Guggenheim, a circle line harbor cruise, the dinosaurs at the Museum of Natural History (hello, decor for Night at the Museum), cupcakes in Central Park, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the JP Morgan Library (seriously, how awesome is it that they have a poem Abraham Lincoln wrote about a bear hunt, a piece of music Mozart wrote when he was five, and a letter from J.D. Salinger’s trip to Belgium and the Netherlands (he had seen enough “fucking tulips” to last him a lifetime)?), a trip to the Mormon temple in Manhattan (which of course I couldn’t really enter but it was still very interesting to look around the parts I could be in since the temple is so central to LDS religion), and, of course, a visit to Strand. I could move to New York for that bookstore alone. It’s hard to say what was more fun, and I’ll make sure to blog about the week later on! For now, a couple of pictures.
Like I said, a lot of fun.
